The wait is almost over.
Toyota has been on a teaser onslaught for its next-generation 2024 Tacoma pickup truck, sharing new details and features on "Taco Tuesday," the latest of which is the reveal date, set for the middle of this month.
While the teasers are a fun way to learn about the truck, we are ready for Toyota to reveal the thing, and now we can confirm when that will happen. Toyota will reveal the new Tacoma on May 19. CarBuzz will be attending a drive event with Toyota for the new Grand Highlander on that date, so we'll be able to bring you up-close content as the truck makes its global debut.
Toyota shared four more teaser images of the Tacoma's silhouette along with the reveal date announcement. These images appear to show various trim levels that will debut on the next-generation model, so let's take a closer look and see if we can figure out which is which.
The first image with the bronze background is the most obvious; it's the upcoming Trailhunter trim, specially designed for overlanding. Toyota already teased the Tacoma Trailhunter wearing bronze paint, so these background colors must be related to the trim level's launch color. We knew this trim would receive accessories from ARB, but this is the first time Toyota has teased a roof rack and sport bar in the bed.
We believe the truck with the white background is the TRD Pro, since that's the color Toyota teased it in just a few weeks ago. This model will feature the i-Force MAX hybrid powertrain, likely with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.
The red background is slightly less obvious, but it could be the TRD Sport. This trim may offer the manual transmission Toyota teased earlier this week.
Finally, the dark grey background confirms that the Tacoma will still be available with an access cab model for buyers who don't need four doors and a large rear seat. This likely shows the SR or SR5 trim.
These latest teasers may have only shown the silhouettes of the truck, but they gave away plenty of juicy information. There is not much more we can learn about the Tacoma. Toyota still has two more weeks until the unveiling, so we may not be finished with Taco Tuesday content yet.
At least we know that the wait for the fourth-generation Tacoma is almost over.
